Yesterday I *officially* started on the no-fructose programme. I did have a miniscule scraping of honey and three dried banana chips, which combined to make me bloat. I feel like I’m starting to make progress, being able to pinpoint the cause of my woes with more accuracy. And I feel great – clearer head, clearer skin (not much, but still), energy and all that jazz! There’s a general sense of well-being in our home today.
I found a product online which I am very keen to try. It’s called Candidex and it’s available through a website called Nutrineeds. My sister introduced me to this site because they offer online correspondence training in nutritional counselling. I am so excited about that! Next year I will definitely be studying nutrition through these folks, and finally be in a position to help people.
Despite eating no carbs, drinking no alcohol, completely eschewing all processed foods, and focusing on organic and healthy choices, I am bloated, constipated and sore. My skin is terrible – I look like a wrinkle-faced teenager who’s just hit puberty! My joints ache and I’m exhausted. My hair is dull and lifeless. I am utterly despondent – my so-called SCD lifestyle miracle is not helping me right now, and neither is the two grand’s worth of supplements in my medicine cabinet. Despite working out six days a week (cardio AND weights), in moderation, and getting enough sleep, I have no energy, no motivation. I am focusing on cultivating a more joyful attitude to life, and today, it’s not happening. I want to be svelte and unbloated. I want clear skin, bright eyes, and shiny hair. I want energy, passion and zest for life.
I want health.
If this isn’t the way to get it, what in the world is?
Cruciferous vegetables (also known as Brassicaceae) include cauliflower, cress, bok choy, cabbage, broccoli and similar green leaf vegetables. They derive their name from the shape of their flowers, whose four petals form a cross, or crucifix. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have discovered that 3,3?-diindolylmethane in these vegetables is a strong protector against prostatecancer. Even though the American Cancer Society advises adults to eat at least one serving of antioxidant cruciferous vegetables every day, most of us only eat one serving a week, if that.
Active elements in cruciferous vegetables
- support healthy breast and prostate tissue;
- maintain health levels of hormones;
- support healthy tissue growth throughout the body (inhibiting the action of cancer cells).
Ick! Brussels Sprouts! How can I get enough cruciferous to protect me from cancer, without eating food I don’t like every day?
